The DPO disAbility Cornwall & Isles of Scilly is excited to showcase its disability lifestyle media network called DISCOVER Voices. The network aims to give people living with a disability or long-term health condition a digital platform and a voice, sticking to the Disabled peoples' movement's motto: ''Nothing About Us Without Us''. 

DISCOVER Voices encompasses its very own podcast network that discusses life through the lens of people living with a long-term health condition or disability, all available on their YouTube and fully captioned.

  • The Advocacy Fellows: Young adults with learning disabilities conduct interviews and share their experiences:  
  • Cornwall Memory Cafe Podcast: the Cornwall Memory Cafe Network's Wayfinders Anna & Jules interviewing specialist guests on dementia and memory loss:  

DISCOVER Voices also produces short films and documentaries on Cornwall's thriving voluntary sector. Explore and subscribe to their channel!
